The idea is basically to get people to answer these four little big questions: 1. What excites you about current metaverse technology? 2. What concerns you about current metaverse technology? 3. What will be most the surprising impact of metaverse technology on society within the next decade? 4. What barriers will metaverse technology never overcome? Our hope is to build a time capsule.
